Wiring Specificity and Synaptic Diversity in the Mouse Lateral Central Amygdala.

Abstract

UNLABELLED The central amygdala (CeA) nucleus, a subcortical structure composed of mostly GABA-releasing (GABAergic) neurons, controls fear expression via projections to downstream targets in the hypothalamus and brainstem. The CeA consists of the lateral (CeL) and medial (CeM) subdivisions. The CeL strongly gates information transfer to the CeM, the main… (More)
